Students must follow established GRCC safety guidelines and COVID-19 protocols in place for the Fall 2020 semester: Students and employees must complete an online health screening before arriving and will be required to wear face coverings in all public spaces. (Implemented July 2020)

Specific to this section of AT-140/AT-139, students will also be required to wear a mask during face-to-face (F2F) classes at all times. Failure to do so will result in dismissal from that class session, either voluntarily or with a campus police escort. If a student cannot wear a mask for health reasons or feels safer at home, they may attend the course in a synchronous online capacity.

Students will be divided into two sections: One group will meet F2F on Mondays; the other group will meet F2F on Wednesdays. These F2F class sessions will be spent working on assignments and drawing from the still life under Instructor supervision. On days a section is not on campus F2F, they will spend that day’s class session working on class assignments off campus.

All lectures, presentations and assignment critiques will be given synchronously via Zoom video conference off campus. Lectures will be made available via Blackboard post-class.

Open Studio Lab hours will be determined and posted after the beginning of the semester.

Supplies and Materials:

Students will be responsible for purchasing class drawing supplies from the course materials list at Service Reproduction Co., 340 Summer Ave NW, Grand Rapids, 49504.

Campus Closure:

If GRCC closes F2F campus classes during the Fall semester for an indefinite period of time, students will transition to an all-online class format for the rest of the semester. The online format will include continuing all assignments off campus, uploading finished assignments through Blackboard or GRCC email, and attending all lectures, presentations and group critiques of completed assignments through Zoom.

Course-Specific Requirements

This hybrid course will run as follows: The drawing lectures/demonstrations will be performed live in the classroom (329 RJF) during regular class time. However, due to Covid-19 these demonstrations will also be viewable through zoom, for students who cannot attend due to safety reasons.

If the campus closes at some point during the semester all instruction will continue through zoom, will follow the established course schedule laid out in the syllabus, and submission of drawings will change from live submission to submission of a picture of the drawing through upload on our blackboard site or through email.

While the campus facilities remain open and are accessible we plan to observe social distancing. To accomplish this our student group will be divided into two groups of 9 students each. The Tuesday group will receive instruction and live demonstrations on specific Tuesdays (this will be shown on the course schedule) during regular class time: 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The Thursday group will receive the same instruction and demonstration on specific Thursdays per the course schedule.

Due to Covid-19, social distancing and wearing masks at all times is essential for the safety of all. The classroom will only have 9 easels appropriately distanced. Students who do not observe social distancing and wearing masks will be required to leave the classroom. If a student does not observe these rules and refuses to leave, then campus Police will escort them out.

Students will be able to draw in the drawing room (329 RJF) and at home. Again, to observe social distancing the Tuesday group of students will be able to draw in our classroom on Tuesdays (9:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.) and the Thursday group of students will be able to paint in our classroom on Thursdays (9:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.). As you can see here, we will have the classroom available for open lab time beyond regular class time for both of our groups.

On days that we do not have scheduled lectures/demonstrations we will be using the classroom to work on our drawings. As mentioned above we will observe the Tuesday group and Thursday group schedule. Some students might choose to draw at home. If anyone needs to ask me a question I will be available through zoom during each class time: Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Even if you are part of the Thursday group you may join me on zoom on a Tuesday if you have questions and you want me to comment on your drawing. The same is available to the Tuesday group if they need help on a Thursday.

Students who feel safer at home can exclusively draw at home and as mentioned above can get the live lectures/demonstrations through zoom. Students who do not attend the scheduled lectures/demos either in person or through zoom will lose their participation points for that instance (participation points are explained in the syllabus).

Students will also need to connect through zoom with the instructor and their respective student group to present their drawings during progress and when finished. These meetings are called critiques and they enable us to discuss what we can do to improve our drawings whenever this is necessary. This is an important part of the class and points will be assigned for your participation. Tuesday critiques and Thursday critiques are scheduled on specific dates (included in the course schedule within the syllabus).

As long as the campus remains open students will be expected to submit their finished drawings by placing them in the classroom on the due date. If for safety reasons you are not comfortable doing so then I will accept an email with an attached photo of your finished drawing as the submission for grading.

As you will find out through our syllabus, students are responsible for purchasing drawing supplies.

  • Students will be provided a selection of pottery materials from the GRCC pottery lab.
  • No clay will be made this semester due to the possible health concerns of sharing materials. This is a major change in the pottery classroom. In the past students have had unlimited access to clay for projects. Therefore, please be prepared to budget your personal artistic goals with your personal finances. For example, each 50lb box of clay cost approximately $30 dollars.
  • No slipcasting will be made this semester.

Handbuilding Emphasis- Off-Campus

  • Professor and Students will not meet for in-classroom lectures the entire semester.
  • Students will work independently to complete all projects at an off-campus location.
  • Professor and Students will discuss and plan all hand-building assignments via Blackboard, Google Cloud G Suites, Youtube, and Zoom.
  • These times/days will correspond to the GRCC class schedule when enrolling.
  • All project assignments will have deadlines.
  • On these deadline dates students will be required to deliver their pottery projects to the GRCC pottery department studio.
  • Once the projects are delivered the works will be fired in a kiln and another lab time/date will be scheduled for student pickup.
  • This process will continue throughout the semester until all works have been completed to the finished glazed stage.

Campus Closure

  • If the GRCC campus is required to close during the fall semester, or if the pottery studio is required to close due to any circumstance, students will then be required to complete all pottery assignments at an off-campus location throughout the rest of the semester.
  • During this stage, all pottery works will be graded in the unfired and unglazed state.
  • If the GRCC campus or pottery studio is closed the remaining part of the semester, all students will then be allowed the option to return their unfired pottery works the following semester for firing and glaze completion.
